In 2017, average daily cigarette consumption varied significantly between age groups.18 Consumption was lowest among the youngest smokers, at fewer than 11 cigarettes per day (CPD) for smokers under age 25, and was highest among smokers aged 25-34 and aged 45-54, at around 15 CPD (Figure 1.9). 

Between 1999 and 2017, average daily cigarette consumption appears to have decreased overall in all age groups, though least among smokers aged 25-34 (Figure 1.10). A general pattern of increasing consumption with age (and often a slight drop after 55) held for most years between 1999 and 2017, although with some variation.
